Although I've only met Judge Hinojosa in sentencing guidelines seminars, I can't believe the previous poster's comment that he is abusive and arrogant. My encounters with him have been cordial and considerate. But I understand that you are in the trenches with him and I am not, so I respect your posting.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 1660
Extremely abusive and arrogant. For cases he deems beneath him, Hinojosa coerces settlements instead of doing his job and ruling on legal issues.
